Rain harvesting system saves up to 30% of water usage

SHAH ALAM, 23 Mar: The Rainwater Harvesting System (RHS) at the Silver Jubilee Hall, Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah (SSAS) Building, provides savings of up to 30 percent of treated water usage.

The Exco for Environment and Green Technology, Elizabeth Wong, said that the move is in line with the Green Action Plan issued by the Ministry of Urban Welfare, Housing and Local Government (KPKT).

She said that the collective effort is also being taken to create awareness and provide encouragement to government departments to follow suit.

“This rain water reservoir tank has a capacity of 100m3 with a capability of 75 percent.

“It is able to accommodate water usage in six toilets in the hall with an estimated consumption of 146 cubic metres of water in a month.

“The water source generated by the RHS is suitable for cleaning floors and for landscape plants in an effort to reduce dependence on treated water supply,” she said during a press conference after the Rainwater Harvesting System (RHS) launching ceremony today.

The construction of the RHS at the Silver Jubilee Hall started on June 4, 2014, and was fully completed on November 10, 2014, at a cost of RM288 thousand.

RHS is an alternative of the hydraulic engineering system using the approach of reusing rainwater for non-potable use.

The system which includes an excessive energy usage protection feature was developed in cooperation with the Malaysian National Hydraulic Research Institute (NAHRIM).

Prior to this, the Chief Minister, Mohamed Azmin Ali, officiated the RHS, which was also attended by the NAHRIM Hydraulic and instrumentation Laboratory Director, Ir Mohd Fauzi Mohamad, and the NAHRIM Water Resources and Climate Change Research Centre Director, Mohd Zaki Mat Amin.

“RHS can also overcome water supply problems during drought, reduce water bills and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” she said.
